Very clean beach and safe to swim. Good seawater pool at one end that stays full when tides out. Lots of small cafes and restaurants overlooking the beach and within easy reach of the town amenities.

Weather wasn't great on the morning we visited but nevertheless the beach was busy and we had a stroll. Beach was spotless. We went back later in the evening as there was a fireworks show at night which was fantastic. Best show we've seen!

Lovely beach and promenade, pretty big and not too busy in September. Great walks in both directions. Lots of places to eat and watch the surf. Nothing amazing, but definitely very nice. 3.5 stars

Very good to go with your little one, clean sand, large beach, not too much people in November - but you have to catch a good day to walk, lovely view on Saint-Malo.

Passed by this little town on my road trip across west of france. The beach is very pretty especially since it was empty in autumn. There is a walk along the side of the beach along the rocks which is very nice
